The weather, if a little damp (but only a little), will be mild and lovely. Therefore Byrd House Market will present a nearly full house today! Have you seen the Autumn colors, eh? Starting to turn beaootiful. Starting to fall a bit. I walked out my door this morning and the grass was sprinkled with brilliant yellow silver maple leaves. Always the first to drop in a breeze, no other leaves had even turned from green to any other shade, but those silver maples can’t to flutter and fly… I love autumn.
I’d like to remind you of Chocolate! Bars and cookies and tarts and hot drinks… But then I’d also like to remind you of the greens and root veggies and lettuces that are savory good, belly good and prepare the system for that 70% cacao rush! Simple, nutrient dense and heart warming soups and broils are soooo on the menu.
Did you see Steve???
Steve Haas Mushrooms made the big time daily paper’s Gardening section last week – just dude and his ‘shrooms. What a great article about a peculiar vocation! My favorite part of having Steve and Liz at the market, beside their grooviness, is that every time I ask about a new mushroom, how I should cook it, they both do the same thing. They look thoughtful for a nano second before saying, “Oh, I’d just slice it and saute it in butter” (I’m asking you, now, is there any better answer to a cooking question than butter???)
